Series: Delirium, #2
Publication Date: February 28, 2012
Synopsis: I’m pushing aside the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana and my old school,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke and flame.
Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed New York Times bestseller, Delirium. This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.
Verdict: "Oh. My God." These were the only words I could utter after reading Pandemonium. Then I tried to gather my thoughts, so I put the book down and began to pace. But it wasn't long before I was returning to the book and re-reading the last page. And still, the only words running through my head were, "Oh. My. God." And that's when I began to panic, because I would have to wait until 2013 to get the final installment. Then I became angry. How could Lauren Oliver do this to me? She has just wrenched my heart out of my chest and made me eat it. And do you want to know what the worst part is? I liked it. Finally, I just accepted what had happened and decided to write my review. Although what this is really going to be, is a paragraph full of fangirling and twisting emotions. You see, you might have noticed something about the process I went though after finishing this book. It was the grieving process- and it was real. First there was the shock, then the panic, next came anger, and finally acceptance. And all of this happened within ten minutes. I read a quote once that said:
"What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him [or her] up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though."
That is exactly how I felt. Like I could have just called Lauren Oliver up and gotten her to spill the secrets for the next book or we could have just chatted about Delirium and Pandemonium like old pals. But I have not had the pleasure of meeting Lauren..... yet. But
